THE FERRARI TESTAROSSA IS A LIVING LEGEND THAT COVERED MILLIONS OF WALLS AS POSTER IN OUR CHILDHOOD! NOW COMES A UPDATE 2.0
The Ferrari Testarossa (Type F110) is a 12-cylinder mid-engine sports car manufactured by Ferrari, which went into production in 1984 as the successor to the Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer. The Pininfarina-designed car was originally produced from 1984 to 1991, with two model revisions following the end of Testarossa production called the 512 TR and F512 M, which were produced from 1992 to 1996. Including revised variations, almost 10,000 cars in total were produced, making it one of the most mass-produced Ferrari models.
Now it was time for an update. As beautiful the factory lines are, as outdated he looks with the to small forged wheels and old fashion design. You can argue if the wheel design is your style or not but please don't say anything about the Classic Gold color. It looks simply perfect to the black exterior! The Blackforce One custom wheels have a filigree designs where the spokes kind of match the side and rear fins. The owner said: it would be pretty awesome to bring a modern touch to an iconic car and we agreed, so the project started and this is the result. Epic sexiness!
LOOKING MUCH LARGER NOW WITH THE 20-INCH BLACKFORCE ONE WHEELS
The rear mid-engine design (engine between the axles but behind the cabin) keeps the center of gravity in the middle of the car, which increases stability and improves the car's cornering ability, and thus results in a standing weight distribution of 40% front: 60% rear. The original Testarossa was re-engineered for the 1992 model year and was introduced as the 512 TR (TR meaning TestaRossa), at the Los Angeles Auto Show, effectively as a completely new car and an improved weight distribution of 41% front, 59% rear.
Saying that, it is a clear improvement that now all the empty space between the much to tinny factory tires are filled now with some super sticky Pirelli P Zero’s. Does it help? You can bet! No traction control no easy peasy whatever, simply mechanical grip and that can not be ever too much. In fact the stance is now on a level that if Ferrari would do this back in the days, the car would have performed much better but somehow Ferrari loves to keep the distance between rims and fenders for what ever reason. We don't, as first thing you have to understand when you want to improve something is, use everything you have to close the gap.
